Brockenhurst 1-4 Sholing
Boatmen were ruthless in their finishing with a big win on the road in the Forest in an enjoyable end-to-end game. Sholing got off to the perfect start when after 3 mins Dan Mason capitalised on a defensive slip to finish from 12 yards. D-Dan then turned provider on 43 mins, again a defensive error was seized upon and the striker pulled the ball back for Marv McLean to score. The home side were creating some decent chances and finally made it pay on 62 mins when a flick-on was swept in. However, any thoughts of a comeback lasted all of 2 minutes as TJ Cuthbertson robbed a defender on the edge of the area, skipped past another and finished well. Icing on the cake came on 78 mins when Alex Sawyer's corner found the diving head of Byron Mason to power in the 4th goal - Match Report & Photos
Sholing 1-0 Hamble Club
Boatmen progressed into the Semi Final of the Southampton Senior Cup with a close, hard fought win over near neighbours, Hamble Club. Lee Wort went from villian to hero in the space of 5 minutes, firstly having a penalty saved and blazed the rebound over, but then on 36 minutes, scored the game's only goal. Wort latched onto a long ball, beat the keeper as he cut across the box and smartly placed his low shot back inside the near post, past a couple of defenders on the line. Visitors were on top for most of the 2nd half, forcing a lot of corners & set pieces, but Sholing withstood the pressure well - Match Report & Video

Sholing 0-1 Bournemouth Poppies
For the 3rd time in the last 4 games, Boatmen failed to find the net as our recent sticky form matched the very sticky pitch. Heavy rain just before kick off, made the pitch a bog and it got worse as the game carried on. It was a match totally dominated by Sholing, who hit the woodwork 4 times and had several shots off the line and scrambles in the Poppies 6 yard box as their goal lived a charmed life. Was typical that Bournemouth scored with their only effort of the game and that was gifted to them by Sholing. An underhit backpass stuck in the mud in front of Gosney, allowing Coulson to go round him and tap into the empty net - Match Report
Sholing 1-0 Bashley
Owen Royl's sweetly struck half-volley on 65 minutes got the Boatmen back to winning ways as we ground out the victory. The visitors had the best of the first half, with Gosney saving several shots and Jack putting the ball over when it seemed easier to score. Sholing improved after the restart, without creating much, but a cross by Wort found Royl on the edge of the box and he connected perfectly with a low half volley that flew in - Match Report & Photos
Fareham Town 2-0 Sholing
Boatmen went out of the Russell Cotes Cup with a lacklustre performance that was fully taken advantage of by a lively Fareham side. Home side took the lead on 44 mins and doubled it on 56 mins, both well taken goals. Sholing's only effort of note was a Dan Mason shot that hit the bar as we drew a blank for the 2nd consecutive game - Match Report
Hamworthy Utd 1-0 Sholing
Boatmen's 12 match unbeaten run in the league came to an end with a disappointing performance at Hamworthy. A dull first half, wasn't improved upon much in the second, although the home side did force Gosney into a brilliant double-save. Dan Mason had our only meaningful effort on target and on 75 mins, the home side grabbed the only goal after we gifted them possession - Match Report & Photos
